Micro Focus Lego City
On display intended to engage and attract the attention of customers and partners, the Micro Focus team created an interactive and educational display which will take the audience back to their childhood through the Micro Focus Lego City. It will show the functions, challenges and approaches customers often use when transforming to a Digital Enterprise, all through plastic bricks. The Lego City represents the stages of planning, building, delivery and running the IT management capabilities. This architecture is based on IT4IT™ (standard reference architecture and value chain-based operating model for managing the business of IT) and Micro Focus has abstracted this into 11 Functions and 10 Master Use cases.

This exclusive conference will host over 100 senior representatives and IT leaders from the country's largest enterprises, major consultancies and various governments departments.
